Gate Fold Card

Hello!! I am finally posting card number 3 for you all to see. This is called a gate fold card. The most important thing for this card, in my opinion, is to know how you are going to keep it closed. This one is kept closed by the sentiment, which is raised with a dimensional, and the edge of the flower tucked behind it. I am sure there are a lot of other ways you can keep it closed.

The Stampin' Up! supplies used to make this card are listed below.
Stamp set: oval all
Cardstock: not quite navy, kraft, and very vanilla
DSP: Bella Bleu
Tools: big shot, flower layers, scallop oval punch, large oval punch, and the 1/16" hole punch
Accessories: earth elements brads, not quite navy

This is not my favorite card. I do know that my customers will be happy with it. The main reason why is they are color blue people. They are also usually pleased with about whatever I make, which is a nice compliment.

Once again, thanks for visiting here. I would love to know what you think of this card. Please leave a comment.

Now it is your turn to go-n-stamp!!

Tent Topper Card

This is going to be card number 2 for my upcoming class. This card turned out so pretty. I hate it when the pictures don't really show how beautiful something really is.

The name of this type of card is the Tent Topper Card. I loved how fun this one is to make. It is an easy card to do. This one could be made in the vertical and horizontal direction. I don't know about you, but versatility can be a very good thing.

Here is a list of the Stampin' Up! supplies I used to make this.
Stamp set: Vintage Vogue
Cardstock: real red, chocolate chip, and very vanilla
DSP: Sending Love Specialty (occasions mini catalog)
Tools: Big shot, scallop circle die #2, circle cutter, eyelet border punch, 1/16" hole punch, and color spritzer tool
Accessories: 5/8" chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon, silver brads, and sending love epoxy brad chocolate chip 1/4" (occasions mini catalog)

I need to start working on card number 3. Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment if you have an extra minute.

Joy Fold Card

I am working on some different cards for an upcoming class. I want them to be different than the usual 5 1/2" by 4 1/4" card. Be watching over the next few days to see the cards I have come up with for this class.

To start, I made a Joy Fold Card. I have never made one of these before. They make up fast and are fun to do. You could add more to them or just leave them very basic and simple.

These are the Stampin' Up! supplies that I used to make this card.
Stamp Set: Priceless
Cardstock: rich razzleberry, old olive, orchid opulence
DSP: Cottage Wall
Tools: Big Shot, embosslit die beautiful wings (occasions mini catalog), scallop circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, 1/16" hole punch, white gel pen, and stamping sponge
Accessories: clear rhinestone brad

The smaller picture gives you a glimpse of what it looks like when it is open.

Thanks for visiting. I pray you have a wonderful day. If you have a minute please take the time to comment and tell me what you think of this card.

Small Gifts to Share Class

Sorry it has taken me a while to get a new post on here. I am going to have to really work on getting things done sooner. I can't believe how fast a week goes by.

Here are the samples I came up with for my next class that I am having at the end of this month. I used the new Sending Love Specialty Designer Series Paper to make these little gifts. I had been wanting Stampin' Up! to come up with glittery paper for a while. I am so happy that they did. For cardstock I used the coordinating colors that went with the DSP, which are real red, pretty in pink, chocolate chip, and very vanilla.

As you can see I used a test tube and added nerds, the sweet treat cup to make a 3 x 3 card, a junior legal pad cut in half and covered, and lastly a pack of tic tacs covered. My favorite is the 3 x 3 card and then the tic tacs.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look. I hope you like what you see. If you have an extra minute, please leave me a comment and tell me your opinion.

Anniversary Card Class

Hello fellow bloggers. I finally have some new cards to share with you. I had two of them done the other day, but I waited to post all 4 of the cards together. These are what I came up with for my upcoming anniversary card class. One dilemma I had was, I only have one saying that says happy anniversary. I like having more choices, but sometimes you just don't. My other thing I seem to be getting stuck into is that I love the horizontal cards much better than the vertical. Because of this I tend to make them all the same direction. I don't think that is a good thing. I am going to have to make myself broaden my horizons and make them vertically also.

This is the first card I came up with. I used orchid opulence, cottage wall, old olive, and rich razzleberry cardstock for this one. The stamp set used was priceless. I usd the new scallop corner punch, scallop circle, 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" circle, heart to heart, and corner rounder punches, a stamping sponge, and a white gel pen. I used the organza ribbon also.

Since I didn't want to use the same happy anniversary stamp, I decided to use my defining alphabet stamp set to make the l, v, and e. The heart is from the love you much set. The cardstock is kraft, not quite navy, and bella bleu designer series paper. The tools used are the 1 1/4", 1 3/8" circle, and the scallop border punches. The ink used is not quite navy.

Once again I used something new out of the new occasions mini catalog. The vintage vogue stamp set along with the saying from the teeny tiny wishes set. It is a wonderful set to own. I have seen tons of beautiful cards made using this set. For the cardstock I used always artichoke, mellow moss, orchid opulence, and elegant eggplant. I hand cut out both of the flowers. I used a stamping sponge to add richness to the mellow moss cardstock and for the background color on the square. Ink used for this project was versamark, mellow moss, always artichoke, orchid opulence, and elegant eggplant. The 1/4" grosgrain ribbon is elegant eggplant and I added a brad from the vintage set.

For this last card I wanted to use the new XL two step bird punch. I thought it would make a cute anniversary card. When my husband seen this one he said, "This one looks springy." I have to agree with him on that. I used so saffron, almost amethyst, whisper white, and basic gray cardstock, and tea party designer series paper. For ink I used so saffron, basic gray, certainly celery, and pretty in pink. The tools I used was the XL 2 step bird punch, which is in the new occasions mini catalog, modern label, word window, and eyelet border punches. I used my Big Shot and the ovals die to make the two different sized ovals. Of course, I used the stamping sponge once again to add richness to the so saffron cardstock. I love how it looks on cards. For accessories I used 1/4" pretty in pink ribbon and a brad from the soft subtles pack.

Just in case you don't realize it all of the products used are Stampin' Up!
